Okay, so you need to reset your password. Here are the steps using the built in tool from Apple:

  • Turn off your Mac (choose Apple > Shut Down).
  • Press the power button while holding down Command-R. The Mac will boot into Recovery mode. When you see the load bar appear you can let go of the keys. It may take a few minutes to load.
  • Select Disk Utility and press Continue.
  • Choose Utilities > Terminal.
  • Enter resetpassword (all one word, lowercase letters) and press Return
  • Select the volume containing the account (normally this will be your Main hard drive).
  • Choose the account to change with Select the User Account.
  • Enter a new password ***** re-enter it into the password *****
  • Enter a new password ***** related to the password.
  • Click Save.
  • A warning will appear that the password ***** changed, but not the Keychain Password. Click OK.
  • Click Apple > Shut Down.

Thank you for using our service!
